STILL LOOKING FOR HOUSING IN CAMBRIDGE?
 
If you are still without accommodation in Cambridge, here is some 
good news. The LOC has made an arrangement with a fourth college, 
St Edmund's College, to offer student rooms (B+B) on a standby 
basis. This accommodation will be allocated on site, at the 
Registration Desk. Delegates who use this service will pay the 
College direct, by credit card, when they collect their room key. 
Simon Mitton will answer accommodation questions prior to the 
Meeting by e-mail <smitten at cambridge.org>

LAST MINUTE INFORMATION ON CAMBRIDGE
 
Weather prospects
 
This year, late summer in Cambridge has been cool, cloudy, breezy 
and rainy. The LOC recommend that everyone comes prepared for 
rain because it is not possible to walk under cover from 
colleges to the Meeting venue.
 
Little essentials to pack
 
In packing for the Meeting delegates may wish to consider 
the following points. DPS2005 is not providing a fancy 
conference bag or notepads of quarto paper. In European hotels, 
and therefore the college rooms of DPS2005, the bathroom 
towelling supplied does not include facecloths. Tissues 
(e.g. Kleenex) are not provided either. But, of course, there 
will be soap and shampoo.
 
Making everyone welcome
 
On Sunday September 4, the DPS2005 volunteer staff will be on 
duty at all three Colleges: St John's, Robinson, and 
St Catharine's. Their uniform is a smart yellow polo shirt with 
a DPS2005 logo in blue. Our volunteer staff will help with 
directions to find your room, with luggage, and local 
information. Members of the LOC will be available through 
cellular / mobile phones to resolve unexpected difficulties. 
The volunteers and the College staff will have their numbers.

at the Cambridge meeting.  Those seeking to hire are welcome 
to post a description of the job, along with contact information
